“Using Kristen’s excruciatingly well-observed short story about the horrors of dating as the starting point for a true genre film, cat person will explore the hellish landscape of modern romance and the idea that we’ve all been the villain in someone else’s story and the victim in others,” Fogel previously said of the project.

Braun is of course best known for playing Cousin Greg on HBO Successionand also appeared in the likes of the big villain and Zola, while Jones starred in Netflix locke and key, hall of wolves and Doctor Who, and first Oscar-winning film CODA.
